MARGARET SCOLES. attain a lasting tm, 1 Y w M fl !llE0l7' W0 HEN I consider how my days are spent In North High's halls of learning, wisdom bent, I wonder how my patient mentors live And labor on to inspire and to give To me, and others such as I, some hope, And yearning, higher than the present need. Of finer clay and longer vision built, Are those who see in awkward, noisy youth, A future, great-souled bearer of the truth: Who know that in the languid, sleeping mind, Sometimes is waiting power to help mankind: And knowing this, resolve to bring to life The best in each, to meet his own world's strife When I consider-I regret my days are spent. When I consider how my days are spent A shadow falls. I know that man is meant To struggle on and face toward new attacks, But where in all the world will one now find Like patience, courage, understanding kind, Such as we take unthinking every day Nor show our gratitude in any way To those who give of rich experience To help some callow youth to learn his role, So on life's stage he may attain a richer goal.

KContinued2 Diaries should be private, so they say, But seniors lead a public life, every single day. September 3-Here we are again with all the new 10 B's grinning and the Seniors with their chests stuck out. Crossland breathes a sigh of relief and says. "I made it at last." Football practice begins. Green, Lang, and Campana are eager -for football, that is. September 6-Miss West receives names of prospective Ianuary graduates. All seniors stop breathing until they find out for sure that they're on it. Big class of 67 members reported-three girls to every boy. Program cards are written in home room. Sowerwine can't remem- ber how to spell his name. My, my, we see Shirley Stout was born in 1946. She must be terribly smart to get through school so fast. September 19-Student Council has assembly for the installation of officers. Everyone in Council is all dressed up, even the Seniors. September 20-First senior meeting for nomination of officers.

I notice that the smoke coming out of their chimneys is orchid colored. The streets in the down town section are royal purple, and the curb- ings are gold. I immediately inquired to find out what brought this new fairyland- like atmosphere to Des Moines. It seems that Loraine Miller and Dorothy Hedegaard, noted interior decorators, suddenly decided that our town was a dull and dingy place in which to live. They, therefore, changed their professions from interior decorators to ex- terior decorators in an attempt to glamourize the city. Then Iean Heefner, president of The Women's Club, came tc Loraine and Dorothy's assistance by organizing her club in a strike against business houses who would not cooperate with their city glamourization plans. The district attorney, Bob Saf, came to the girls' rescue by issuing a statement saying that any wood or brick building would be condemned by the city because of the danger of fire. Naturally. the business houses were forced to buy the fireproof pastel colored glass sidewalls. The city needed new streets, so Street Commissioner Ierry Green was consulted. After serious and dignified consultation with County Auditor Ronnie Fox, Ierry decided to agree with the city glamour- ization plan. and so purple ever-wearing glass streets with gold colored curbings were built throughout the city. lack Buss got into serious trouble. It seems that one of his float- ing neon signs got away. This sign said, "Curve to the left. Air pocket." The astronomers thought they saw a new planet. They took their rocket ship up beyond Venus and found it was only one of Iack's signs. The astronomers demanded Iack's arrest for being a "Russian agent" trying to throw them off the track. Governor Eddie Chilcoate cancelled Iack's arrest, but said that hereafter neon signs could not go any higher than Mars. The Governor's election was another spectacular affair. Eddie's slogan for election was "I am the grandest bum in the state: if you don't believe it, just ask me. If you elect me Governor, I will see that your children don't grow up to be like me." For Eddie's campaign poster, Ward Hill, an expert photographer, used his new three-dimension photos for the first time. These photos not only show height and width, but thickness or depth. Gwen Stitzell was elected Chief of City Smell Distribution. In her helicopter, she sprinkles enticing "Heaven Scent" perfume on the city dumps, garbage cans, sewage disposal plant, etc., Gwen is also in charge of furnishing rain and snow at desired times by sprinkling Snorain, secret formula discovered to make rain or snow at any time. Gwen also has had her share of trouble. One day she just hap- pened to sprinkle her perfume on a certain high school, not North. The principal of the school was up in arms because he thought her sprinkling meant that she thought the school smelled. Therefore, the City Council voted to stop Gwen from sprinkling her enemies, so she had to go back to sprinkling dumps. Marjorie Coon won the title of Mrs. Champion Cook of 1967. She made the best apple pies in the state. Iune Cloud, who is also a housewife, decided that this idea of getting up in the morning to do housework was getting monotonous. Therefore, she devised a machine that sucked up the dirt when she pushed a button. Maietta Iohnson was elected Mrs. America of 1967. Her charming attendants were Wilma Ainley, Lucille Iones, Ioy Hutton, and Dor- othy Cubbage. Shhh! Don't tell anybody, but I saw Gretchen Vlassis at work. As I knocked on the door of her office, I noticed a big sign, "Genius at work"-well, at least that's what the sign said. Gretchen's work is highly secret. She is the official lollypop taster for the biggest candy company in town. In fact, Gretchen has changed the whole candy industry because she prefers such flavors as coffee cream, carrot, and celery lollypops instead of strawberry and lemon. As I proceeded down the street, I came to a huge restaurant that is owned by Alex Gurnas. His slogan is "Where The Wise Keep Their Size." As you walk into this restaurant, you see a scale. A man weighs you and takes your height and age: then he decides if you are too fat or too thin. If you are thin, you are sent to Alex' thin people's restaurant, where you are fed high calory foods. If you are fat, you are sent to Alex' fat people's restaurant, where you munch daintily on carrots and cabbage. After lunch I decided that I was getting sick of this modern world, so I went into the nearest drug store to get some sleeping pills. The proprietor of this drug store is Iohnny Campana. When I told Iohnny what I wanted, he laughed and told me to be sure and see the latest show called "The Invasion of the Creeping Lizards," a musical comedy. The plot of the story centers around the green people from Iupiter, who really aren't lizards. That's just their nickname. These green people came to watch a show starring Mari Iayne Erickson, who is one of the green people. Her witty comments and criticism keep the audience laughing, so to speak. Lola Riglin's all girl orchestra is one of the featured attractions of the show. Iames Albright and Henrietta Bueford, world famous pianists, startled the audience by introducing a new piano concerto, called, "Melody in NORTH." They had already revolutionized the music writing theory. Notes now go from a to z instead of from a to q. Delmer Baldridge and Iohnny Case each played a solo. Iohnny Case climaxed his solo with a five minute drum break. thus keeping his title of the "Rhythm King." Ierry Lang was suddenly stricken with appendicitis . . . Oh look! Is it a bird? Is it Mighty Mouse? No, it's Dr. Bob McLaughlin and Dr. Tom Brunson coming to his rescue in their whizbangsavealife plane. The doctors place Jerry carefully in their plane. He is rushed to the nearest hospital, where he is put on the operating table. Surgical nurses Iacquelyn Duffy and Ieanne Davis immediately prepared the patient for operating, being careful to see that all the straps were tight, while nurse Carol Ienning comforts the complaining patient by holding his soft, white hand and smiling fiendishly. In this day and age ether is a thing of the past. The huge ice machines are put to work freezing the patient's stomach. Then the operation proceeds with absolutely no pain to the patient. Of course, Carol Iennings is doing a good job-of taking care of the patient's nerves, that is. Flash!! The doctors issue a statement as follows, "Things in here are in a terrible mess." Ierry decides he likes this idea of having operations and so re- quests that they pull his wisdom tooth out while they are operating. Des Moines' best dentist, Ronald Crossland, arrives at the scene of action, bringing his wrench and pliers in an attempt to get even with Ierry for some past misdeed. As he looks down at the miser- ably happy patient, he decides to forget the old grudge and just charge the patient three times the usual fee. So the ice machines are turned on to freeze Ierry's head this time. The extraction was successful, so to speak. Anyway Ierry survived. Of course, that was after another operation by surgeon Roy Overton. Iose Vilar, noted chemist and inventor, is regarded as the greatest man in the modern world. Iose developed a liquid face powder that will stay on for a year. He also developed a rouge and lipstick fContinued1 40 lfVlN7'lifl TIM The North High faculty is composed of forty-two men and women.

ENE PM NORTH HIGH BAND Highlighted by new green and gold uniforms, the North High band entertained thousands of people with various formations and songs during halt-time ceremonies at North's football games. The band, under the direction of I. B. Snyder, was larger than the North High band has been for several years. One ot the formations which brought the loudest applause was the barn dance and a jitterbug step by band members. The majorettes this year practiced very hard during the season to perform the routines with the band. They also had new uniforms. A new arrangement of North High songs was introduced by the band to the students. It was called the "North High Medley," which was all the school songs combined into one. North Des Moines, North High, The Bear Went Over the Goal Line, and As We Go Marching were the songs used in this arrangement made by I. B. Snyder. The quality and quantity of a school's band is a great factor to school spirit at vari- ous athletic activities. MR. I. B.

W l 1 "COME RAIN OR SHINE" PLAY CAST LEFT TO RIGHT: Dale Hulshizer, lean Heefner, Richard Russell, Kenneth Walker, Ioe Popple, Marilyn Gates, Chastine Webber, Lola Riqlin. Under the direction of Miss Helen Woodman. North's dramatics department presented the all- school play on November 15-16. The play, "Come Rain or Shine," was written by Marijane and Ioseph Hayes. It was an up-to-the-minute story of an amus- ing American family trying to enjoy a simple sum- mer vacation at the lake. Until the theater came into their lives, the Gray- son family was an ordinary family. But when a handsome theater director and enthusiastic young actors and actresses descended upon the quiet of the summer home, confusion and hilarity took over. From then on the play was a merry mix-up of love affairs and differing personalities. With 10 girls and 5 boys in the cast, there was sometimes more action and noise back stage than on stage. Members of the cast often had to come every night after school, taking half an hour for supper, and then back again until 9:00. In between scenes on the stage they would busily start doing their home work for the next day. While other North students were enjoying Armistice Day vaca- tion, the cast was at school rehearsing for the play. The stage crew was kept busy putting up scenery, adjusting lights, and seting up electrical devices. The boys on the crew made doors and windows, a Dutch door and porch screen effect, and adjusted big spotlights, so as to give the appearance of sun- light shining in the windows. During the last re- hearsals, both the stage crew and members of the cast were on the stage at the same time, and it kept the cast busy dodging tall ladders and trying to make themselves heard above the hammering and pounding of the stage crew. Under the direction of Miss Genevieve Moore the girls on the costume committee kept the costumes of the various characters in order and in good re- pair. Helping the actresses change dresses between scenes and seeing that they wore the right costume for a certain scene were other tasks that kept the costume girls busy. The art, make-up, and property committees were important factors in the producing of the all-school play. Without the art committee to paint the sets, and the make-up committee to make up the char- acters so as to make them look natural to the audi- ence, the play wouldn't have been a success. The property committee had a big job in securing all the furniture and properties for the play. It was also the property committee's job to see that gun shots went off at the right time, and that the tele- phone rang when it was supposed to. Producing an all-school play takes a great deal of effort on the part of many people. Few students realize the constant work required of the director. Miss Woodman, who must not only direct the play. but must see that all things are attended to which make the play go smoothly. It is only through the whole-hearted cooperation of the director and cast, the sponsors and committees, that the all-school play is produced. TS COACHES Georqe Falk, Theresa Anderson, Francis Cretzmeyer, Coach George Falk started his career at North this year by coaching the football team to a fairly successful season. The team won three games and lost five. Coach Fa1k's grid- ders defeated North's oldest rival, East High, 26 to 6. Coach Falk also coached the cagers through the recent basketball season. Coach Francis Cretzmeyer took his second team football squad through a successful season, falling only to Roosevelt and East High. Coach Theresa Anderson took over the coaching job of the boys' golf team from Coach Mose Iencks because of illness of Mr. Iencks. "Andy" also coached the girls' golf team this season to second place laurels in the city series race.

They went through the sea- son with a clear record. All oi the boys that were on this year's team will be back this spring and Coach Theresa Anderson believes that they will give all contenders a good battle in the state rournament. BOYS' GOLF North's fall golf team this season was coached by Mrs. Theresa Anderson instead oi Mose Iencks because oi an illness oi Mr. Iencks last summer. The club had a special meet with Grandview College team and de- feated them, 3 to 2. The Bears captured third place in the city series. being defeated by Roosevelt and Lin- coln, who took first and second places respec- tively. Claude Hixenbaugh won top honors with an 87 in the city meet. BOYS' GOLF KNEELING: Robert Tavenner, Dick Grldea, Larry Courter.

The girls fought out a hard season and are expected by Coach Theresa Anderson to have a bright future ahead of them. GIRLS' TENNIS The North High girls' tennis team has again brought the city cham- pionship crown to the Polar Bears this semester. This season they again went un- defeated and untied. For the past sixteen semesters the girls have only had one blot on their record. This was in 1942 when the Polarites tied Roosevelt High in the city series race.

CROSS-COUNTRY TRACK FIRST ROW: Tom Moore, Gerald Guerrero, Ed Talley, Leland Graves, M, L. Kerr, SECOND ROW: Don Sheil, Erwin Hafenstein, Bob Parker. North High's cross-country track team, which very seldom gets any recognition, walked off with its third successive cross- country state title again this season. The team, which is composed of Tom Moore, M. I... Kerr, Le- land Greaves. Tom Shield, and Wayne Harris. walked off the field at Iowa City as state champs by nosing out the Iowa City and Roosevelt of Des Moines tracksters. Coach of the state champs is Francis X. Cretzmeyer, better known as "CRETZ". Coach Cretzmeyer announced that he believes that this is the first time in the state's history that one school has held this title for three successive years. "Cretz" stated that if we win the fourth time he knows that the victory will be an all- time record. Cretzmeyer has high hopes of winning again next season because, with the exception of M. L. Kerr and Don Sheil, all of the state champs of this year will be back. The harriers started training for their season meets at the same time the football team did. After school each night they would do exercises and then run two to three miles over dirt roads and fields. Their first meet was the mile run down at Iowa City in which they placed third. Next they went to Ames for an in- vitational meet and came out with top honors. Then they faced all teams of Des Moines. Nevada, Ames and Newton at the Drake Stadium before the North-Roosevelt football game. Then came the state cross-country meet at Iowa City. The Polar Bears were really hepped up and were determined to win the title again. Tom Moore, who was expected to take first place individual honors, ran into a bit of hard luck. The cross-country is set up for both high school and college courses, the college course being the longer of the two. The route is marked off at turning points with blue and white flags. the blue meaning to turn left cmd the white to the right. The trouble came when Tom, who was leading the rest by a great distance, saw a red flag. Undecided in which way to go Tom went to the left along with Hoaks of Roosevelt, who followed him. The third man was from Iowa City and knew the course very well, so he turned the right way. Before either of the North and Roosevelt boys could turn around and catch up with the Iowa City man, the race was over. The Iowa City man won with Hoaks of Roosevelt placing second and Tom third. The Bears still won, however, the team scoring big and went through another season with only one loss to mar the record. which was the mile run at the beginning of the season. The team, for their hard work and effort. was awarded letters for this sport for the first time since North started to par- ticipate. The team deserves these letters as much as those taking part in other sports in the school. This has been ques- tioned many times by the students. Coach Cretzmeyer chal- lenged those who doubt the work of these boys to come out and try it themselves next year. TOM MOORE lAction Shotl Tom Moore, letterman and captain of the 1946 cross-country track team, ran all out to place third in the annual state cross' country race at Iowa City. Tom will be back ior the team again next year and will he one of the greatest assets to the team. WRESTLING HI' HOW: Bob Slit, Rodnwy tfrowivy, Glenn Remsbury, Al lvltxuyurl, Demi Iuttolu, lol?

WOKTH,kW .HIJHLITJ The first school building of North Des Moines was situated on Forest Avenue between Thirteenth and Fourteenth streets. This school was called Forest Home School, and had gradually grown from a one-room country school to a four-room brick build- ing. It accommodated three departments, the pri- mary, intermediate, and the higher grades, with three teachers. In the fall of 1889, North Des Moines High School was definitely started, the high school department of Forest Home School being made up of three rooms and a hall. Then, in 1896, because of the need of a newer and larger school, a new brick building was built in the midst of an old apple or- chard on Eighth and College Avenue. For some years after the completion of the new building, there was talk about turning it over to the grade schools and combining North and West High. This idea was abandoned, however. About 17 years after the completion of the North building, a larger school was again needed. Stu- dents and teachers began boosting a new building. and the student body formed into two groups to Q Gi t N., ,.N.f, ft sim ., .J t - Yiflsgfg secure signatures for a petition that a bond of Sl50,000 be given toward a larger building. The bond issue succeeded and a new school was finished in 1915. During the following years North High grew and became one of the leading Des Moines High Schools. It was the first Des Moines school to have a student council: the foot- ball team won the city championship for three con- secutive years: and many new clubs and commit- tees were formed. But again North was becoming overcrowded. The city had voted a 330,000 bond issue for improvement of the West High building, but this plan had not been carried through. So it was decided to transfer this money to be used for an addition to the North High building. It was in 1929 that North gained a whole new building facing Seventh Street. Once again plans are being made for a new North High School. The location has been decided upon, and in a few more years, our younger broth- ers and sisters will be attending a beautiful, modern high school. 1 The average North High student merrily starts the school day by arriving at school by 8:00 so as to have plenty of time to review his lessons for the day. Upon arriving at school, he neatly hangs his wraps in his locker, and gets his books, paper and pen- cils, so that he will be well equipped for the day's work. Every North student's locker is a perfect example of orderliness and efficien- cy. Books are stacked neatly and all articles are in a special place so that the student can immediately find exactly what he needs. Because of the "spic and spanness" of their lockers, North students are never late for Home Room or classes. Long before the last bell rings, the halls are silent and de' serted. Every student is sitting quietly in his seat in Home Room, studying his lessons, or if all of his assignments for the next month or two are prepared, you may find him lazily relaxing with a good book, such as Gibbon's "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire." When the announcements are read, all students reluctantly pull themselves away from their books and give full attention to the person reading the announcements. The reading of the announcements is always fol- lowed by a brisk discussion of school affairs and rules. This daily discussion accounts for the fact that school rules are rarely broken, and the evil culprit who disobeys the rules begs for the opportunity to right his misdeed. Oftentimes, he happily comes to school at 6:00 every morning and writes the rules a hundred times or so, in order to prove his repentance. When the nine o'clock bell rings, the North High students quietly file out ot Home Room and hurry to their classes. Unlike students at other schools, North students do not stand l around chattering in the h a l l s before classes. Instead, they hasten directly to class, because they know that the longer class period they have, the more time they will have for rec- itation and tests. Nat- urally, they are ea- ger for such pleasur- able activities. So continues the typical school day. When 3:30 rolls around and the end of such a happy day has come, the North students sadly and slowly leave the building, reluctantly dragging themselves away. E The new course of auto driving was introduced to North High this year under the instruction of Hu- bert A. Sargent. 'Ihe subject is offered at North on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and at East on altemate days. As it is an alternative course, it gives only a fourth of a credit. Each class has eight members and is divided into two groups with four students in a group. One group of students drives on one day while the other goes to study hall. The next day that the class meets, the other group has a chance to drive. The first procedure that was taken in the course was to become familiar with the various parts of Xe wi the car along with the Iowa rules and regulations. After this the classes were given a test, which the students were required to pass in order that they could drive in Union Park. After becoming familiar with the controls and the art of driving, they were permitted to drive in business and residential dis- tricts. A log was kept to have a record of how many hours the students had of actual driving. At the end of the semester, if they had the required amount of hours and could pass the Iowa driving test, they were issued the Iowa driver's license. Although there has never been an accident dur- ing the course of auto driving at North, several students have turned corners just a little too fast: or turned right, in the midst of their excitement, instead of following the instructions of Mr. Sargent, when he said to turn left. The car is equipped with dual-con- trol clutch and brake. In case the student driver loses control of the car it is possible for the instructor to stop the car by using the controls on his side. Because so many students enrolled in the driving course this year, higher classmen were given preference. The subject was so popular and gave the students such excellent training in driving an automobile that North High will offer this course again next semester. Typical is this group in the library during one of the study hall periods during the day. Besides books, encyclopedias, and dictionaries, the students have access to the late issues of magazines and college bulletins. Books may be checked out, taken into the study hall, or used in the library itself. Mrs. Lura Long is in charge of the library and the Library Committee. 'Ihis committee helps Mrs. Long in the library dur- ing class and before school. On pleasant sunny days, North High students like to spend their spare school time lounging at the building entrance, talking and laughing with their friends. The general trend of conversation usually concerns tomorrow night's game, that test in history, or the dance Saturday night. This custom has been going on almost since the beginning of North High. Now it has become a part of the traditions. The initials carved on the brick at the entrance were probably put there by some student back in 1914, wearing a white starched high collar, with his hair parted in the middle. Another familiar sight that may be seen on the warm, sunny days, is the amateur photographer. Before and after school, and during the lunch hours, he can be found snapping candid shots of his friends or almost any object he happens to focus his camera on. Students snapping pictures, sauntering back from the drugstore licking an ice cream cone, and stand- ing around chatting with their friends, are all a part of the friendly spirit which makes up North High School. li. Supervising the mechanical well-being of North High is Roy King who heads the custodian depart- ment. With his staff of excellent workers, Mr. King watches out for lost locker keys, keeps the building spic and span and repairs anything from the office switchboard to a leak in the boiler room. Work- ing long hours and without much praise the cus- todians deftly manage to keep North High func- tioning properly. Because of the capable work of Mrs. Ethel Wil- son, chief of the cafeteria, and her staff of help- ers, lunch time is probably the most enjoyed part of any school day. It's no wonder that North students sigh happily when leaving the cafeteria and say "That was some 1unch!" Thanks to our food staff the students and faculty enjoy hearty and balanced lunches every day. SENIOR DIARY fContinuedl Mr. Snyder charters a bus tor the band to go to the game.

However, Iose's lipsticks are not all pink or red: some are green, blue, purple, black, and yellow. Can't you just picture this modern world? But, the women aren't the only ones who have changed. Look at the men! Iose's cosmetic company sells the false eyebrows and lashes. Men also wear Iose's face powder because no whiskers can grow through the skin while the powder is on. Margaret Gifford and Donna Bernhard got tired of being private secretaries so they invented the think-o-type machine. The boss just thinks out loud to this machine. The machine types while he thinks, being very careful to address the letter and stamp it. Now all the secretary has to do is act as a receptionist and take care of the boss. Margaret and Donna lacked the necessary funds to manufacture the think-o-type machine, so they formed a corporation with other successful stenographers, typists, and scretaries. The stockholders are Madge Lunt, Armenta Sidoner, Shirley Frey, lane Wells Holland, Betty Lindahl and Bonnie Lea Campbell. These stockholders are paid dividends of five thousand dollars annually. Incidentally the chairman of the board of directors, Shirley Stout, earns Sl0,000 a year: while General Manager Don Prior earns SZ5,000. Betty Stump has a very exclusive beauty shop. You see, anyone who comes to her shop for beautification must be between 20 and 45, of at least average looks, preferably good looking, and must be interesting enough to amuse the beauty operator. The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Beauty Operators, better known as local hair razer union No. 3, has forced Betty to adopt those rather strict policies for selection of customers. As I proceeded down the street, I suddenly realized it was Sunday morning. I heard the chimes ot a nearby church and decided to go into it. From the pulpit I saw Episcopalian Bishop James Robbins giving one of his world famed dramatic sermons. The subject of this sermon was "Can you be a good Christian and yet take part in the inter-planetorial colonization race?" It seems that the world hasn't changed much from way back in 1946. We, Americans, still are trying to beat Russia to almost everything. We own the moon: Russia the sun. We own Mars: they own Venus. Both countries are exploiting their new colonies. Iames demanded that this colony race be stopped because of the threat of an impending war between the planets. In spite of the new inventions, human nature hasn't changed. In the afternoon Doris Iensen plays her last tennis opponent to win the title of International Women's Tennis Champion. Her op- ponent was disqualified because the judges found that she had a magnetized tennis racket. With this kind of racket, no one can miss a ball. Radio engineer Bob Sowerwine has introduced a new radio feature. It is a radio newspaper delivery service. You put a coin in your radio, and the latest newspaper comes out of a slot. Bob devised this method because he was afraid many people in America were becoming illiterate, thanks to all the visual aid teaching. Ernest C. Schulze is now regarded as the fastest talking, cleverest lawyer in the country. He has a reputation for being a "racket buster." Ernest, however, has taken several criminal cases for friends, but he was sure the people involved were not guilty. He is called "The man who never loses a case." What kind of a case they don't say. His name will go down in history with that of other great lawyers, such as lohn Marshall, Abraham Lincoln, Bob Saf, and Thomas Dewey. Irwin Carey is now the owner of a large chain of grocery stores called "Cash and Carey Away Stores." He sells cloud dust, sun, and moon beams at bargain prices. When he has a Saturday sale, it is necessary to call out the air patrol because the ladies in their helicopters keep double parking in the air. IContinued1 Surprise Scoop!

As I was looking at the dresses. I thought it would be a major shock back in 1947 to see a woman dressed as they are in 1957. Margaret Scoles modeled what she called a sweet little afternoon frock. It was black with no back, a long skirt coming within three inches of the floor behind and slanting up till it is twenty'three inches above the floor in front, and her shoulders were bare. Nevertheless, this frock is called "very conservative," and "old-womanish." Wilma Way, who is the dress buyer in Iames' store, bought this dress in Paris. Wilma is now termed the fashion queen. Her words on style are considered "proof positive" of good taste and fashion. Mary Craddock has been selected "Woman of the Year" by the Des Moines Chamber of Commerce. She received this honor for her splendid service as a social worker. Mary Ellyn Brady is now teaching "liberal arts" at Drake. Last year she broke the world's champion record among teachers for class approval of the "teacher." She received 850 kisses in a clay - candy kisses. of course? Hey girls! Do you want some advice? Well, just drop into the office at North High School and meet girls' adviser, Ianet Smith. Her job is to help all girls to get dates. Dorothy Ieanne Blegelid made a hole in one at the golf course five times this year. Dorothy has a nationwide reputation for being a marvelous sportswoman. She likes fishing, horseback riding. and hunting what kind of hunting she does, I wouldn't know. Georgia Nichols and Shirley Henderson are the editors of "She" magazine. This magazine has become more powerful than the government. Every time the ladies disagree with some policy, the magazine calls a women's general strike. Georgia and Shirley have become experts at calling strikes. After all. Iohn L. Lewis taught them his technique before he died. Also on the staff of the mighty "She" magazine are Io Ann Stites. business manager: Elaine Brophy, theater editor: lean Chase, college editor. As I leave the "She" magazine publishing house. I see a strange plane or something. I just can't make up my mind what it is. Then, Clifford Clem steps out of this contraption. It seems that this is a traveling "bakeshop of the air." He travels from country to country, planet to planet, selling bakery goods and hunting new recipes. Iames Dilliner. Mary Lou Roach, and Loretta Mullenix have formed a commercial art corporation. The city objected to billboards that covered the view of the city sights. So with the help of lack Buss they put their billboards in the air. Now the city is mad again. this time because the billboards obstruct air traffic. Poor lack, he just can't satisfy all of the people all of the time. The kids of the town took their helicopters out on Halloween and busted all the air billboards. As all bad things come to an end of some kind, this one must too. Dreamingly yours.
